US Health Care Reform—Effect on Employers and Employer-Sponsored Plans

20 April 2010
Mayer Brown Legal Update
On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the “Patient Protection Act”) and one week later he executed the accompanying “sidecar” bill, the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, which significantly modified certain provisions of the Patient Protection Act. The goal of these two pieces of legislation is to ensure that virtually all US citizens and legal residents have access to health care coverage that satisfies certain minimum standards.
